  • LITTLE LEAGUE: Puckett's two homers power team to championship

    Dusty Puckett finally got the opportunity to swing at some pitches.

    Fortunately for the Cubs, Puckett didn’t forget what that felt like. The all-star pitcher and shortstop ripped two home runs over the fence and his three RBI powered the Cubs to a 16-11 win in the Anderson County Little League championship.

    “He hasn’t been pitched to in four, maybe five games,” Cubs manager Scott Boone said. “They just walked him.”

  • COLUMN: Heroes come in all shapes, sizes

    As someone who has less than a year of living in Anderson County under her belt, I’m proud to know I live in an area with heroes at every turn.

    Look no further than this week’s front page to see several examples of proof to back up that statement.

    Or ask any member of the Farley family ­— I’m sure they’ll tell you Anderson County is full of heroic men and women.

    While boating on the Kentucky River on Thursday, the Farleys got stuck on top of the dam at Lock 5.

    Law needed to replace worn, torn flags

    To the editor:

    My name is Nick Schrieber and I am a 12-year-old Christian Academy of Lawrenceburg student.

    I think that all flags at businesses in Lawrenceburg should be checked to make sure they aren’t torn.

    They show not only our pride in our country but also the pride in our veterans, living and dead.

    My grandfather, Danny D. Dunn, retired 100 percent disabled and was in the Vietnam War.

  • COLUMN: 260 minutes of Can-You-Top-This?

    Over 25 years of writing and about 20 more of general fandom, I have been to a whole shaboodle of really good games. I have witnessed countless great contests. A whole bunch of “heckuva” games.

    I have been to quite a few epics and run of the mill classics.

    And last Thursday, I attended the Eighth Region tournament championship. Like nearly everyone who made the trip to Carroll County High School, I expected to see a good game, maybe even a routine thriller or nail-biter.

  • COLUMN: Grateful to be back in my new Kentucky home

    Crazy. That’s what most people thought I was when I accepted this job four years ago last month.

    “You’re going to leave beach life in North Carolina to move to Kentucky?” they asked. “You’re an idiot.”

    Perhaps, but having led a fairly nomadic life while plying my craft, I was confident that I’d enjoy Lawrenceburg as much as any of my stops along the road.

    I’ve reheated this particular skillet of hash to let you know that not only don’t I regret moving here, I’m mighty glad I did.
